Posted by , on 31 August 2022

Location: University of Pittsburgh

Closing Date: 31 August 2023

The lab of Dr. Yvette Yien of the Department of Medicine, Vascular Medicine Institute at the University of Pittsburgh, is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work with us.  Our lab seeks to identify the mechanisms by which heme and iron metabolism are coupled with the needs of individual cell types, and how heme and iron regulate tissue development.  Other projects include determining erythropoietic adaptations to pregnancy. The postdoctoral fellow will be focused on identifying the role of iron metabolism in facilitating the terminal steps of red cell development. The postdoc will work independently to design and perform experiments in embryology, biochemistry/molecular biology, and cell biology.  The lab uses a wide variety of model organisms, including zebrafish, mouse, and mammalian cell culture. Other responsibilities include presenting data at lab meetings and scientific conferences, preparing research articles for publication, assisting with lab administration, and training other lab personnel.

Interested candidates should send a CV, cover letter and the contact information of three references to
